Every time I go to visit my other boss he greets me by telling me how he was just talking to someone who was complimenting my work and how great I’m doing.
Guys, my sister is moving to NYC soon as a starry-eyed unemployed 20-something just out of grad school. Sadly, we can’t all be Carrie Bradshaw and make it in our fabulous studio apartments with HUGE closets writing a column for a no-name newspaper once a week (plegh, who would want to?)
So I’m asking for a little help here.
My sister is awesome. She’s smart and funny. But beyond that she’s responsible, learns quickly, works well with others, takes direction well, and will show up for work on time. She has experience working in archives on cataloging and developing finding aids, being an on-call cleaner for birth rooms at a midwifery, front-desk reception at a museum, and as a tutor.
She needs a job. Even just a few cobbled-together part-time ones. Dream jobs would be in archives, working with museums, libraries, or cultural institutions on the the development and preservation of Old Stuff collections. But let’s be honest, jobs that pay money, any job that pays money, would be acceptable.
I know a lot of us are un or underemployed ourselves. But to any of you lovelies who live and work in NYC already or know someone who does, tips, suggestions, connections, insider information, ANYTHING you can offer up would be awesome. If you want to pass this plea on, please feel free. You can drop her an ask at takeintoaccount, or leave the info with me!

It’s Webinar time in my office again! This one complete with music!!!!!
David Bowie is back, but hopefully not for long. The switch-hitting, bisexual, senior citizen from London has resurfaced, this time playing a Jesus-like character who hangs out in a nightclub dump frequented by priests, cardinals and half-naked women.

Twice a year they do this whole food car thing that takes over an entire block at the center of campus for 3 days (Pacific Northwesterners take their food carts seriously, yo) which also happens to be right outside my office window. ‘Round about 8:30 they start all the prep, including firing up the grills.
Excuse me while my mouth waters and my stomach growls ALL FUCKING DAY LONG
Look, men. If women are “expected” to shave their legs and keep up a relatively hairless appearance, the LEAST you could do is wax your backs. I mean, c’mon….
